Long before the "photojournalistic
style" became the catch-phrase in wedding photography
today, newspaper photographers a.k.a. photojournalists
have been crafting this approach in their daily work
in covering news events with honesty and candor.
The most successful photojournalists
have great anticipation which often comes from shooting
on the streets, being observant, having good imagination,
being vigilant and being ready to react. So if that's
the style of wedding pictures you are looking for, there
is no one more uniquely qualified for that task than
a photojournalist --- a photographer with a newspaper
In a crowded
banquet full of guests, how does he pick out the most
likely person who is going to be very besides the bride
and bride's mother? And when he finds that person, how
can he take the picture unobtrusively?
If he reads his
subjects right, he would naturally move in or select
the right lens and zoom in on his subject all the time
watching the background and the lighting.
